Balfern Curve

Alan Rogers

Balfern Curve , like all my other modules are basically scenic infill between other people’s operational modules, consisting of two 45° corner boards constructed from Tim Horn Laser Cutting kits.

On arrival, four kits were separated out as they’d been very efficiently packed into one parcel, and assembled in a single afternoon. Micro Engineering Code 83 0n30 flexible track was laid before some basic scenery, in the form of Gauge Master Autumn Grass Mat which has since had additional Woodland Scenics Fine, Blended and Coarse Turfs in Dark, Medium and Light Green for colour variation.

Balfern Curve has since been relaid with hand laid track built using Fast Tracks 0n30 Code 83 jigs and the scenery changed to create a bit of a shallow cutting around the corner. As such, Balfern Curve is now a single 90° corner module split into two for ease of transport.
